“If we had a do-over, could we atone for our mistakes? What is the value of a human life? What is the source of our individuality?”
A Number is set in the near future, and revolves around the conflict between a father (Salter), and his sons (Bernard 1, Bernard 2, and Micheal Black) – two of whom are clones of the first one. The play addresses the subject of human cloning and identity, especially ‘nature versus nurture.’
A Number will be performed on the 4th, 5th, and 6th of November at the Usva Cultureel Studentencentrum. You can buy tickets from the Usva here.
Merel Spruijt will be playing the role of Salter, and Hessel Bergmans will be playing the roles of Bernard 1, Bernard 2, and Micheal Black.
Production Team: Elsemiek Hes (director), Rosa Kremer (producer), Joost Doornkamp (crew).
